Community Relations

Blair Academy strives to work closely with the greater Blairstown community by opening many of its programs and facilities, including the Society of Skeptics series and Romano Gallery, to the general public.

At certain times of the year, Blair also offers the use of its facilities, including the Romano Dining Hall, Tracy Hall and Armstrong-Hipkins Center for the Arts, to schools and other organizations. The local elementary school holds its sixth grade graduation party here each year, with graduates enjoying use of the School's indoor pool. The Sixth Biennial Warren County Poetry Festival (also free and open to the public) is held at Blair every other year. Sports clinics conducted by Blair coaches are available at low cost to local youth throughout the year. Students and guidance counselors from Warren County high schools are invited to attend the annual college fairs at Blair, which are attended by nearly 80 colleges and universities from around the country.

Local residents enjoy walking on Blair's outdoor track and walkways throughout campus. The School's nine-hole golf course is open to the public, offering season memberships and low daily rates for non-members (special discounts for seniors and juniors on weekdays). Clubs, as well as motorized and pull carts, may be rented. Season memberships to Blair's 10 tennis courts are available as well. Please call the pro shop at (908) 362-2021 for details.
